Former Marine David Michael Sears (62) surrendered his arms on May 07, 2017 in his final battle at the OU Medical Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. His endeavors in life, love and friendship were guided by a deep honor for his country, respect for his family and the culture in which he was born. He was a survivor of his past with a complex personality whose quick wit and technical skills led to a successful and well-lived life. Born the first son of his late parents Leo Harrell Sears and Elaine Iona Sears (Valkenaar) on Sep 15, 1954 in Long Beach, California.
He is survived by his son Jonathon, daughter Amber, siblings Deborah Mills (Sears), Peter, Paul, April, Leo, Timothy, Tracy White (Sears), Andrew and many aunts, cousins and grandchildren. He may have battled with us in life, but in eternity he is our protector. In death there is forgiveness, honor and respect; put you hand over your heart, a Marine has died. Semper Fidelis our brother.
A ceremony will be held May 27, 2017 at the Oakland Cemetery pavilion in Poteau, Oklahoma at 1:00 PM. The family requests donations to the National Cancer Society in lieu of flowers.
